Every once in a while I will ask Matt for some ideas on what I should bake next. More often than not, I don’t like his suggestions and make something completely different. So now when I ask my answer is, “Why do you even bother asking me?!” But because Father’s Day was approaching, he had a special request that I couldn’t turn down. He wanted me to make Pillsbury’s Lemon Poppy Seed Puffs. I’ve made these a few times for him before, but it’s been years.
This recipe is so easy to throw together, and it’s because it uses Grands! Buttermilk Biscuits.
The dough is wrapped around the filling and pinched together. And then the messy part. The whole thing is rolled in melted butter, and then in a mixture of sugar, lemon zest, and poppy seeds.
They are put into a large muffin pan and they bake to puff up and turn golden brown.
I think this is the best they have ever come out for me. One had filling that oozed out a little bit but that was it. In the past, the filling in almost all of them would come out while baking.
I put about 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese filling inside each biscuit, which the recipe calls for. However, I did have some left over so I probably could have put in a little more in each. This is evident in the above picture.
Matt enjoyed these very much! And he likes to enjoy them by warming them up in the microwave for a few seconds. If you want to give these a try, make sure you check out the recipe here!
